An agony that never ends:

It should be marked that the area of Palestinian Jordan Valley al-ghoor is undergoing an occupational plan to displace all indigenous inhabitants forcefully to take over the whole area.

Citizen Tareq Kabana told Land Research Center the following:

"until today, we have been living a hard life full of hazards and continuous targeting by the Israeli occupation; we have been displaced from the Negev area in 1948 to the area of al-Auja, north Jericho. The occupation demolished our barns several times during 1990s; in 2004, the occupation came and destroyed our tents and barns in the area of Fasayil al-Fauqa. Today, the occupation demolished my sheep barn; I don’t know where to go for I was targeted everywhere I went to".

It should be marked that citizen Kabana received a stop-work on his barrack in 2014 by the occupation claiming the structure built without a permit.

Noteworthy, Colonists targeted the village of Deir Jarir by torching a agricultural land last year. For more details, please read the report issued by Land Research Center in this regards.(Ar, Eng).
